From cow to cone


Welcome to Great Budworth real dairy ice cream farm

The company is based at New Westage Farm in Great Budworth, where supreme quality Real Dairy Ice cream is homemade. The new cafe, opened in July 2003 and complements the company premises. Here customers can enjoy a cone of ice cream in many mouth-watering flavours, or purchase one litre cartons to take away. The cafe now boasts an extensive tea and coffee menu and is complemented with home-baked cakes. Located in the heart of scenic Cheshire, it is the ideal location for either a warming winter hot drink or a cooling summer ice cream.

Forthcoming events

Carriage Rides - These take place at regular intervals throughout the season. A ten minute ride takes you in to the centre of the pretty village, and then back to enjoy a Real Dairy Ice Cream or Hot Drink and home-baked cake. Adults £2 Children £1.50

2008 Carriage Rides are taking place through out the season at regular intervals, usually Sunday afternoons and bank holiday weekends, weather permitting. More dates are available in the shop.

Bostock Band - 11th May, 8th June & 14th September
We are very pleased to announce a continued association with Bostock Band.

Following a successful 'Brass and Baggin' evening (brass and food to those outside Cheshire) a sponsorship deal was agreed with a successful and extremely talented band. Both The Bostock Band and Great Budworth Real Dairy Ice Cream consider the package advantageous, with us both benefiting from increased advertising and prestige.

The Bostock Band attended the opening of our Tea room in 2003. They make a few appearances each summer playing a selection of music including the aptly named Great Budworth Fanfare and Meditation, an original composition by Claire Pownall, first performed in the local St Mary's Church. Last summer they stoically continued playing during a rain storm & had to be "dried out"!

To get more fantastic info on this Band visit

We can confirm the band will be joining us again this season on Sunday 3rd June, 1st July & 9th September 2007. The band 'strike up' from 3pm until 5pm with an interval included.

Maize Trail - The themed Mini Maize makes a welcome return this summer 2008 with a seasonal theme. It's small, simple & great fun for young & old alike. Reasonably priced it includes an ice cream when you return to the shop with the correct answers on your worksheet. It will be up and running by mid July until the end of September and is lots of fun for all the family.

Our lunch menu has also had a new look. You can now choose anything from a sandwich or toasted sandwich to a bowl of hearty soup and a roll.
